EVERY DAY YOU SEE A COW!
Yesterday, my Houston friend Becky posted a button on her blog that was illustrated with a cartoon cow and noted … EVERY DAY YOU SEE A COW! I disagreed noting, “I haven’t seen a cow in years!” She replied, “You saw two cows today on my blog.” CURSES! I was foiled again! Then I quickly ran to the freezer to check my ice cream bars … phew, I was right, they no longer call them BROWN COWS. And there’s no cow picture in a bullseye on the wrapper anymore. I don’t think they call them Eskimo Pies anymore either. And my milk bottle just says Prairie Farm Dairy on it. My butter cartoon just has an illustration of a stick of butter with the Schnucks brand name. And I surely haven’t watched a western drama in longer that I can shake a cow’s tail or a cow bell for that matter. But, so I don’t make any future claims about never seeing a cow anymore, I got out my origami paper and folded one. And VOILA! A COW! And really the cow isn’t green. The paper from which she was folded was patterned with tan squares and the green paper the cow is standing on makes them take on a green cast. Why didn’t I just white paper with black splotches?
